One of the caterers we're looking at wants to charge us $150 for a tasting for my FI and I. This seems a bit excessive to me as the estimate she sent us is less than $70 PP including service, cake, and corkage (we are planning to provide the alcohol on our own).
It seems even worse considering we had a full meal at a restaurant that has a catering service (and we're considering them) the other night, and, including a bottle of wine, 2 full entrees, an appetizer, and gratuity, it was less than $125.
What do you think? Is this too much for a tasting? I feel like we're being nickeled and dimed by this caterer and this tasting fee isn't helping!
